Bonus features include excerpts from concerts in Las Vegas and Chicago, as well as two personal and reflective interviews with Barry. FIRST & FAREWELL will be available October 31 at all retail outlets and at Rhino (http://www.rhino.com) for a suggested retail price of $19.99.

On October 31, 2006, the multi-platinum superstar will revisit this golden decade in Anglo-American pop music with the release of his new Arista album, The Greatest Songs Of The Sixties. This much-anticipated disc—the 59th album of his career—is the follow-up to The Greatest Songs Of The Fifties, released January 2006. That recording became Barry Manilow’s first Number One debut and his first Number One album since the triple-platinum double LP Barry Manilow/Live in 1977.
